I am a Consultant Clinical Oncologist. I specialise in looking after patients with breast cancer and thyroid cancer. I also provide radiotherapy for patients with a metastatic cancer of unknown primary. I use chemotherapy, radiotherapy, radioactive iodine (for thyroid cancer), hormonal therapy (for breast cancer) and the newer biological (also known as targeted) therapies. I also offer entry into any suitable clinical trials of new treatments.
I attended Dr Eichholz clinic with my husband, to receive and update on my condition and for the latest scan results. Dr Eichholz was with his new registrar and took the time to introduce us and to summarise my history for the registrar's benefit. This is typical of Dr Eichholz approach in that he always does his best to make everyone welcome and relaxed even under such tense circumstances as a cancer clinic. We have always found that Dr Eichholz is open, truthful , honest and reassuring with whatever news he has to break. Giving you as much detail as you request. We are very grateful for the excellent care provided by him and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone as a consultant oncologist.
Doctor Eichholz is very kind and has a lovely manner.He is extremely competent and obviously loves the work he does. I don't think I could have been treated by anybody better.
Dr Eichholz is a brilliant doctor. Even though I only met him a couple of times during my cancer treatment, as he wasn't my main oncologist, he made me feel that my condition and its treatment were important and I felt totally confident that his advice was good and up-to-date. He has a warm, caring manner and is very professional, he is an expert in his subject. I would happily choose him as my consultant if given the choice.
I found Dr Eichholz very pleasant, he explained everything in good detail and I never felt rushed during appointments. I felt I could ask as many questions as I needed, even if I thought they might sound daft to him, he always took the time to discuss my treatment and queries. A very professional man and a credit to Oncology Services at Stoke Mandeville.
I have now completed my course of chemo which was supervised by Dr Andrew Eichholz. Whereas chemo is not a pleasant experience and this is not Tripadvisor, Dr Eichholz gave me excellent support for the duration of treatment Each time that I went for follow-up, he would listen carefully to any side effects which I reported and made relevant notes. He was then able to adjust doses here and there to keep the unpleasantness to a minimum. The overall effect of the chemo was very successful the tumour shrank dramatically, so the surgery which has now come and gone was less drastic than it may have been. I have never met such a polite doctor but more than that he knows his stuff. I was able to ask numerous questions along the way and he answered each one. I can't thank him enough.
